Teaching About Climate Change: Water, Trees, and Wildlife – Educator Workshop
June 14, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Calling all educators! Join the folks from Bernheim, the Kentucky Association for Environmental Education (KAEE), and Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill at Bernheim’s Education Center and outdoor surroundings on Tuesday, June 14 (rescheduled from May 17) for this half-day workshop. This workshop will be most beneficial to primarily middle and high school math and science teachers, but all are welcome.
Climate change is a complex topic that can be intimidating to teach. However, understanding climate, including the ways it is changing and how that impacts the environment, is crucial to making informed decisions and building resilience.
This training is designed to help you, as a formal or informal educator, teach about climate change in a holistic way to provide your students with engaging educational experiences that will help them understand climate resilience for communities and the environment. You’ll get to spend a half day in a beautiful environment with engaged workshop facilitators and fulfill some of your continuing education requirements at the same time!
We’ll use the Project Learning Tree, Project WET, and Project WILD climate modules to help inspire you and give you the skills to hep your students develop innovative solutions to address challenges that are arising as a result of climate change.
The workshop will be led by Bernheim’s Youth and Family Program Manager Dan Pascucci, Pony Meyer, and KAEE’s Katherine Bullock.
KAEE members $25; non-members $30
